LEITBILD ANGST
Four years after their last album ZEITGEIST WELTSCHMERZ, STILL PATIENT? release four new songs with the EP LEITBILD ANGST, which show how much the band knows how to refine their gothic rock with the right ingredients. The epic DOWNFALL PRAYER is just as multifaceted as the sung about topic of depression. The driving TREES FALLING is about saying goodbye to beloved and inspiring life companions, while SOUL REAPER delights with its danceability. With SINCE WHEN, the two long-time friends Andy Koa and Felix Stass from Crematory have finally fulfilled their wish of a joint song that powerfully questions our twisted world. LEITBILD ANGST is a convincing package and a good prelude to the next album, which is still scheduled for release in 2022. The EP was mixed and produced by Rolf Munkes at Empire Studios Bensheim/Germany.

Still Patient? belonged to one of the defining German bands of traditional gothic rock from its beginnings in 1988 and after five releases until its dissolution in 1999.

 

In 2012, Still Patient? reformed and continues to write the history that left its mark in the 90s.
 

Without losing sight of the past, SP? recreates itself, ports itself into the here and now and sounds fresher and more powerful than ever.

HISTORY

1988

Still Patient? was formed in the beginning of 1988 by lead singer Andy Koa and guitarist Th.Kraniny. Their joint love of gothic rock bands such as The Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim and The Mission influenced their first steps in music.

1990

Christian Ogrinz joined the band and some of the songs which appeared on their initial demo tape and later on their first album were written. From the beginning the band chooses to use a drum machine rather than a live drummer.

​Later that year Christian parted company with the band to concentrate on his own projects and BecKes took over his guitar duties. Hedge Kaluza also joined the ranks on keyboards and Still Patient? played their first live shows (with Deine Lakaien and Das Ich).

​After a few more live dates were under their belts the band compiled their first demo tape.

1992

In 1992 they signed to Hyperium and the first album Salamand was released.

1994

The second album Cataclysm was also released on Hyperium.

1996

In 1996 Alice in... signed Still Patient? and published the limited Chameleon EP, however the proposed new studio album never got further than the demo tape stage. The recorded material did eventually see the light of day on the Nightmare Arrival album which mainly consisted of some home recordings and exclusive material. The album featured the track Shadow of the Empire which was used on the soundtrack of the computer game Battle Isle III - Shadow of the Emperor by Blue Byte. A specially produced video can also be found here.

​In the following years Still Patient? appeared on numerous European festivals such as the Wave Gotik Treffen (1996 and 1999), the Sacrosanct Festival in London (1996 and 1997).

They toured in Germany with Soul in Isolation and The Tors of Dartmoor and also played some festivals in Italy (Genoa and Rome).

1998

In 1998 Still Patient? started work on their (final) studio album Demondive. At this point bassist AX of Minus Men joined the band on Bass Guitar.

1999

Demondive was released in June 1999 by Schwarzrock. The band again played at the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig before their last live performance at the end of 1999 on a festival line-up which included Crematory and Saxon among others.
